Hello, It's Been A While

It's been far too long since I got all inky and messy, and now that I'm back from my hols and the mud has been washed away AND I had the house to myself it seemed the perfect opportunity.
This is my entry to the Stampotique bookmark challenge. The base card is from LaBlanch and it really is fab - well worth a go. It's been inked sprayed and painted and it took it all in it's stride.
I've used various spray inks and Tim Holtz and Prima masks.
It's been a while since the Heads in a round has been out - I love their curious expressions, and the Bla Bla Bla stamp is just how I was feeling today lol.
I've edged it all with some Ranger copper tape just to keep the sides from getting ratty (and 'cos it's shiney mmm)
This is how it looks when it's on the book - hands up who remembers where Hairy Mclarey's from lol.
Sincere thanks to everyone who's e-mailed me asking if I'm ok. I know it looks like I drop off the planet ever now and then, but I'm still here and life is good.
Thanks very much for looking x
